  1. NHL 2017-18

    Logo aside, that Buffalo template is pretty sharp. And it was introduced a year before EDGE.
  2. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Where's that Fonzie jumping the shark GIF? I need it for Ohio State.
  3. Arena Rafters & Banners

    Here's what NHL teams should hang banners for: Stanley Cups Presidents Trophy Conference championship (from playoffs) Regular season Division championship Retired numbers
  4. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Great GIF... and it proves you know how to pronounce his name!
  5. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    OK, let’s get this back on track. Three-time Stanley Cup champion with an O6 team in a rabid market that wears classic uniforms... to the Arizona Coyotes. Here’s Niklas Hjalmarsson.
  6. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    So, um, what's his "right" NHL team? How is this wrong?
  7. Minnesota Timberwolves

    No. Hell no.
  8. NHL 2017-18

    It's not irrelevant. The C might not be the same C but it's pretty close, and it's the been the cap logo for one of sports' most iconic brands for over a century. I think more people associate that C with the Cubs than the state of Colorado. It's inevitable that people would call them the Colorado Cubs or whatever.
  9. NHL 2017-18

    And here's where I point out that the Cubs have been using that C style for about 100 years longer than the Avs.
  10. NCAA Basketball 2017-18 New Uniforms

    The Washington State athletic department is putting the boring into 'damn, Nike knows how to make boring uniforms.'
  11. MLB: Project 32 - San Francisco Giants, Pt. II Added

    My goodness. The Cubs set is pretty much my dream. As for the Padres... I kinda want to leave my wife for it. And I’m happily married.
  12. NHL 2017-18

    I really like what the B’s did, getting the striping to make more sense. I just wish the yellow socks were an option.
  13. NHL 2017-18

    The Devils’ new uniforms are really growing on me. I love the bold striping and it’s not so much of a departure from what they used to wear. Feels more and more like a strong evolution of a set that had history but was by no means iconic. (God, I’m going to get crushed for this.)
  14. Unpopular Opinions

    Then I'd admire their fatalism.
  15. Unpopular Opinions

    I totally get this, but in the same vein I think it's weird when somebody from Philly ends up a Tigers fan and misses out on one of the fundamental parts of fandom. For better or worse, sports teams unite cities, states and even regions. When the Cubs won, it felt like the whole city won something and it came together to celebrate and bask. I'd look less askew at somebody if they said they were from Philly but dropped the Phils because they stink, rather than somebody from Philly becoming a Tigers fan because they were good. Jeez, I thought I was more cynical.
  16. Unpopular Opinions

    1. Don't care. 2. Don't care. 3. This is one of my absolute pet-peeves of the board. "I hate the team so I hate their identity" is so senseless for a place like this. We're here to evaluate the aesthetics of sports and the inability to separate a team's look from how you feel about it is unreasonable. And here's the thing, all teams are pretty much the same once you get to know them. Sorry. Don't take this personally. I've been waiting to uncork that for a while.
  17. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    "We're Florida Gators football. We care about your eyes."
  18. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I see the green there. Because of this I found a color blind test online and took it. Said I have normal color vision. Phew.
  19. After everything UAB has gone through, I'm cool with them breaking out "look at me!!!" uniforms.
  20. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I see it more as a dark slate. So if I am color blind then it's not severe.
  21. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    It was always going to be wrong, but getting traded today makes AP in a Saints uniform even more wrong.
  22. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Is the Gators' uniform supposed to be green? Because I'm not seeing it. Am I color blind?
